The funds raised will be allocated to trade and investment programs. Uniastrum is one of the first Russian banks to sign the Memorandum and was represented at the meeting by Irina Kozlova, Deputy Director of Uniastrum’s Department for Cooperation with Government Agencies. Moving forward, signatory organizations to the Memorandum will join the ICIE Committee for Cooperation in Financial and Credit Policy and the Banking Sector.
